VCSEL CAD software
The PICS3D simulation software aids users in computer-aided design of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). The characteristics of these lasers depend on optimization of many material and geometric parameters--the software`s simulation helps in the design and optimization of such lasers. The simulation is based on a 3-D drift-diffusion model that allows self-consistent treatment of longitudinal modes and optical field distribution. Software also includes self-consistent inclusion of thermal models.
